Series 2 of Newsjack begins broadcasting on Thursday 07th January for six weeks. If you would like to submit comedy material to the show, please follow this Writer’s Guide.
Newsjack is BBC Radio 7’s topical sketch show which seeks to comically scrutinise the news, views and issues of the day. It looks to be irreverent and satirical, a kind of younger brother to the more "grown up" Radio 4 topical shows like The Now Show and The News Quiz.
It is a showcase for new comedy writing so anyone can submit material. We accept sketches and short jokes every week of the six week run. The best submissions will make it into the 28 minute show. All submissions will be read but sadly, due to the overwhelming number of entries, we do not have time to give feedback to most people.
We very much recommend you listen to the show before you submit material. This will help you get the right tone, write for the cast, get an idea of the length of sketches etc. The new series will be available on iPlayer for a week after broadcast. It will also be available as a podcast so please subscribe.
